Who wouldn’t want to take a class surrounded by nature with an amazing view? My Cardio Blast class is located at Mount Bonnell – a great location for a fabulous cardio endurance workout with a hill, stairs, ledges and picnic tables while overlooking Lake Austin at the top!

Cardio Blast takes place on Wednesdays, so it’s the perfect mid-week “break” between strength training days. Because you want to give your muscles at least one day to recover from lifting weights so that they can grow and change, some form of cardio is a great go-to. And, if you are looking for a great quad and glute workout, this one is for YOU!

DSC_4445This high intensity class has many benefits especially because we aren’t moving in one steady state. Cardio Blast focuses on the lower body through hill and stair sprints with intermittent bodyweight exercises. This type of interval training :

  • burns more calories than steady state cardio
  • increases your level of HGH (human growth hormone), which in turn engages your fast and super-fast twitch muscle fibers so you are healthier and stronger
  • improves insulin sensitivity, which can improve your overall health since poor insulin sensitivity can lead to chronic disease
  • produces results faster

I hope you’ll join me for Cardio Blast and experience the benefits above as well as improved speed and performance, higher energy levels, stronger quad and glute muscles, and increased oxygen in your blood.

This class is very fun and challenging. Although we move at a fast pace, all fitness levels are welcome! Plus, you’ll have a group of women who encourage you every step of the way.

See you at the bottom of the stairs!
